Zayn Malik has gone from soulful singer to shoe designer at the drop of a hat.
The star took to social media this morning to reveal that he has collaborated with fashion designer Giuseppe Zanotti on a mini collection of shoes that will hit shelves early next year. The lineup will include a pair of suede desert boots, which the former One Direction member posted a photo of on Twitter and Instagram (below) with the caption: “#GiuseppexZayn Coming 2017.” The series will also include three additional styles.

And as for why he chose to work with Zanotti, Malik was clear. “Style is not being afraid to be bold about some things, or to say what it is you have to say,” Zayn tells GQ of the collaboration. “I feel like Giuseppe does that with his collection—and I try to do that with my music. So it kind of works.”
And it looks like the “Cruel” singer isn’t the only one excited about his new project. Malik’s supermodel girlfriend Gigi Hadid was quick to show her support for his new project—she shared a snap of her beau wearing Zanotti kicks on Instagram with the caption “dreamy.”
